A T8 spinal cord injury can be painful and uncomfortable and it may be affecting your mobility and feeling. Some victims report losing the use of their legs and even needing surgery. If the cause of your T8 injury was because of an accident that someone else was responsible for, contact Accident Advice Helpline for free initial advice and information about your options. You could even be entitled to compensation which could help you financially while you are recovering.
Should I claim compensation?
Compensation may help with medical costs or with unpaid bills which have been left since your accident. You may no longer be able to attend events or holidays which are non-refundable or transferable. Were you unable to continue working or are not receiving pay while taking time off? Compensation could help with all these things and if you have been unfairly injured, it is your right to make a claim.
To find out if you are entitled to make a claim and to see how much you could be awarded, you can either call Accident Advice Helpline over the phone and speak to a trained advisor or you can try our 30-second claim test online. If you needed to see a doctor and a T8 injury was confirmed, we may be able to help you get the justice and compensation you deserve for your wrongful injuries.
How long do I have to claim for a T8 spinal cord injury?
From the date of your accident you have up to three years to make a claim for compensation. If you are unsure whether it has been over three years, you can contact our team who may be able to help you find out when your accident took place.
If the three-year cut-off period is fast approaching we would urge you to get in touch with us immediately as there may still be time to process your claim. In order to be eligible for compensation we must find that the accident was not your fault and that someone else was negligent, and you should have sought medical attention after the accident.
